The Pit (1981)

 A disturbed boy lures victims to a sinkhole containing humanoid wolf (or ape?)-like creatures referred to as “tra la logs.” Before you can make sense of it, an elderly blind woman is hurriedly pushed in a wheelchair, flailing her arms before she is dumped into the tra la’s dwelling. The Pit is actually a unique horror-comedy, intentionally (you can tell by the music). That’s great and all but this is one of the few films of the era that needs to be drastically improved with a sequel. Instead of a sloppy mess where local police officers make goofy appearances, the premise of the creatures being fed bodies by an insane kid who obeys his teddy bear is begging to be re-worked into something dark, scary and memorable. Recommended if you like Troll 2 for its non-acting or Burial Ground for its strangeness. [rating: $6] –Kenyon
